My drummer has taken over as webmaster for one of my favorite venues to play here in town. The website has been completely revamped, and is about 200% better than what it used to be. The owner of the club is considering putting in web cams that would feature the stage area so you could see bands playing there from the comfort of your own living room. I'm not sure if there would be an audio component involved, but I imagine that no matter what you did it would sound like total crap. I think it's kind of a cool idea, but my drummer is very resistant and I think he's pretty much talked the owner out of the idea. His reasoning is that this particular bar is more often than not standing room only when bands are playing. He feels that people would use the webcam feature more as a means of gauging how packed the place is instead of using it to see who's playing at the moment, and perhaps decide to stay at home rather than cram into a packed bar. So....... Is streaming video a good idea, or is it less than a good idea in this instance? Would you stay home if it looked like you might not get a seat once you got there??
